Purpose: A retrospective study was performed to evaluate the feasibility of simultaneous use of immediately loaded zygomatic and mandibular implants for full maxillomandibular restoration.
Materials and Methods: A total of 40 zygomatic and 112 conventional implants were placed in 19 edentulous and partially edentulous patients and restored with full-arch acrylic resin prostheses within 3 hours of surgery. Implant insertion torque values were between 35 and 45 Ncm.
Results: During the 1-year follow-up period, none of the 19 patients experienced implant or prosthesis failures. The patients did not experience any sinus infections or any other surgical complications from the performed procedures.
Conclusion: Zygomatic and conventional implants can be simultaneously placed in the maxilla and mandible and successfully loaded with an acrylic resin prosthesis using the All-on-Four concept.
